Filmi Talks A white girl (@kay_fil) and an actual desi guy (@thatbrownguy420) discuss a different popular Bollywood movie each week. Formerly known as WTF Bollywood.

In this very last episode, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) closed out by talking about Main Hoon Na, the first Bollywood film that Katherine ever saw. Things that happened:

1. We discuss why Main Hoon Na is sort of the perfect film to end the podcast on.

2. Baloch forgets the spoiler alert warning and Katherine does her shitty summary.

3. Baloch admits at least that Farah Khan is an amazing visual director.

4. Katherine makes fun of Shah Rukh Khan's acting? #Nipunwannabe #notmyNipun 

5. Baloch attempts a really awful joke #awkwardmoment 

5. Oh right we talk about how we're ending the podcast #byebitches

6. We try to end on a good note but as always fail at signing off.   

Sorry it had to end so abruptly but thank you all for listening to (err bearing with) us, it really was a pleasure. Your support, tweets, emails, messages, etc didn't go unnoticed and we really do appreciate the friends & enemies we made along this podcasting journey. When we started Katherine didn't even know what a podcast was and now she's listened to almost 3 whole episodes, and Baloch didn't even know how to talk and now he can sort of almost formulate a full sentence, so we really have become better because of this podcast. So thank you for being here to witness and help us through it!

Apparently Baloch still has a podcast so feel free to try to find that, and Katherine is still open to guest appearances if for some reason you want to talk to her. We will forever and always be active on Twitter so please stay in touch! You really have been wonderful.


WE'RE BACK BITCHES! That's right, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) are back after months and months of the stars not aligning to talk about the ultimate star Shah Rukh Khan once again in his latest film, Fan. Things that happened:

1) Excuses about why they've been MIA for the last year.

2) Shitty film summary from Katherine.

3) The film summary was shitty partially because Katherine is the worst but also because the film itself doesn't even know what this film is about.

4) At least Shah Rukh's acting is on point.

5) Aryan Khanna is an arrogant douche.

6) Desi Spiderman.
Shout outs to @sachdeva_pankaj for convincing Katherine that the film was intelligently made and to @sayanigupta for being beautiful and wonderful. Follow us @filmitalkspod on Twitter and Facebook for hopefully more frequent conversations - and to send us hate mail, your thoughts on Fan, and suggestions for what to watch next!

In this episode of Filmi Talks, Baloch (@thatbrownguy420) and Katherine (@kay_fil) discuss Rohit Shetty's latest film, Dilwale. Things that happened:

1. Baloch tries to sound like Mickey Mouse #epicfail

2. The characters are all Shetty (pun intended)

3. Kayfil tries to summarize the movie #epicfail2

4. We discuss Shetty's portrayal of women

5. Kayfil and Baloch are on to Nipun's social neuroscience/podcast experiment

6. Both Baloch and Kayfil suck at pod-casting

Write us an iTunes review, follow us @FilmiTalksPod on Twitter, "like" us at Filmi Talks Pod on Facebook, etc. <3 

The duo are back to talk about the landmark SRK movie, DDLJ. They discuss

1. Plot summary.
2. Why KayFil hates this movie - the clear stalking idealogies.
3. Should we judge this movie through the lens of 2015 or 1995?
4. Kajol's eyebrows, ya'all.
5. The music.
6. Is Amrish Puri the antagonist or the villain? Is there a difference?

Nipun (@NipunChopra7) and KayFil (@Kay_Fil) were joined by Muhammed Baloch (@ThatBrownGuy420) from @Bollycast to discuss Chak de India.

1. KayFil makes a surprising declaration - she doesn't like Shah Rukh Khan in this movie. 
2. Baloch argues that SRK is a good actor, and imitation is A-ok.
3. An argument about feminism in India - and whether or not this movie is consistent with ideals of feminism.
4. We find out Baloch's star sign.
Please leave us a review on iTunes. Let us know if you would like for us to review a movie. 

We're back, and we have our very first podcast guest!

Nipun (@Nipunchopra7) and KayFil (@Kay_Fil) were joined by Nipun's BFF, Mike Spiegel (@MrMikeSpiegel). They discussed The Shah Rukh Khan starrer, Don 2.

1. Everyone's initial thoughts on the movie.

2. Mike brings up the fact that SRK is weird-looking. KayFil thinks it works in his favor.

3. Is this movie creative? Or just a derivative of other movies.

4. Everyone takes turns trying to summarize the movie, and fail miserably!

5. The heist scene - creative or plagiarized?

6. Why is Priyanka Chopra so bad at her job?

7. Mike asks KayFil and Nipun why they aren't married yet.

8. Why was there less dancing?

9. Next week, we'll be watching Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani. TRUST ME, YOU WANT TO WATCH THIS MOVIE. It is available on YouTube.

Check out Nipun's other podcast tomorrow night for an interesting interview with Peter Wilt - president of Indy Eleven - a professional soccer team in Indianapolis.

Check out Mike's blog (especially if you like looking at pictures of the cutest baby ever) -

Nipun (@nipunchopra7) and Katherine aka KayFil (@Kay_Fil) start the very episode with a movie that the latter loves and the former is ambivalent about.

They get into conversations about the validity of Indian cinema, the "brilliance" of Shah Rukh Khan, overarching motifs with the movie, etc. Even the Mahabharata comes up one time.

Are there parables interwoven throughout this script? (Nipun doesn't think so). Is Deepika Padukone a metaphor for mother India?

Nipun points out incongruities in the story, while KayFil thinks those are pointless criticisms.

KayFil calls out Nipun for his ridiculous standards for good movies and his weird obsession with SRK's physical appearance.

Let us know what you think about the movie. Did we miss anything or were we completely off-base with some of our discussion? Get in touch and let us know.
